Turning the Gun On Myself

Album: A Piece of What You Need (2008)
  • Lyrics to Turning The Gun On Myself :
    The morning is bright
    As ?Rapper?s Delight?
    Floats up to my room
    From the street

    And who would disturb
    A slumbering world
    With this late seventies beat?
    I?m taking my aim
    From this window pane
    And I?m turning the gun on myself

    The Upper West Side
    Is supposed to be quiet
    It?s supposed to be wealthy and dull
    So how to explain
    This thundering pain
    That?s pushing its way through my skull

    I?m taking a leave
    Of my senses, you see
    And I?m turning the gun on myself

    New York is loud
    It?s wonderfully loud
    I wouldn?t live anywhere else
    But I need my rest
    To be at my best
    Away from the high decibels

    I?m losing my will
    I?m shooting to kill
    And I?m turning the gun on myself
    I?m losing my will
    And I?m shooting to kill
    And I?m turning the gun on myself

  • Kdjslkaj from Dsmahlds, Vahow is this humorous at all? my friend commited suicide a month ago and i dont find it "ironic, humorious, funny" at all. and he happend to do it with a gun, so hearing the 'hillarious gun shot' in the song would actually make me quite sick to my stomach.. and nobody is in serious trouble if someone cant take a laugh. thats not something, its serious and painful for the ones left behind!
  • Landon from Winchester, OhHow can someone make a novelty song about suicide? Seriously, imagine a depressed teenager listening to this!
